Thrombolytic Therapy

Thrombolytic therapy is an interventional technique that can open veins and arteries blocked by a blood clot. During angiography, the interventional radiologist identifies the exact location of the blood clot and injects clot bursting drugs directly into it to restore blood flow. We often follow up this treatments with angioplasty or stenting to hold open the treated artery or vein.
